, all of this ugliness? what is happening in lansing is part of a trend that we have seen similar acts of violence in madison, wisconsin, in response to governor scott walker's lawful decision to end collective bargaining and we saw example after example of sexual assault, rape, arson, violence, defecate ago police cars in the occupy wall street protest. the left is becoming increasingly vshs and violent, believing they have a right to physically intimidate and harm their political opponents. this is the kind of stuff you would expect to see in a banana republic, not the united states of america this. needs to be condemn in the strongest language possible and more importantly, the thugs committing these acts of violence need to be restrained and arrested. law & order has to prevail. if it doesn't, this violence will spread, there will be blood in the streets and at some point, some people may in fact die. that's the course we are currently -- the violence that we are seeing is, in part, a response to desperation by the labor movement. they know that the stars are aligned against them.

. it is a war on the democratic party. today, a lansing state journal photographer captured this video as waves of union sportupporters and police flooded the state capitol trying to stop the bill. the capitol was locked down. police say they arrested eight people inside, and even used a chemical spray to regain control control. outside, union supporters marched in solidarity the bill exempted unions representing police officers and firefighter. sound like shades of scott walker's wisconsin, anyone? an effort to divide the unions anyone? republicans in michigan, all of michigan control the house, the senate, the governor's office, the attorney general, the secretary of state, total control on the state level. less than two hours ago democratic state representative vicki barnett summed the outrage up on the house floor. >> what bothers me most today is that this bill was not discussed ahead of time. it was discharged on the floor then substituted on the floor. members of the unions came up to protest, and they were locked out of this building. this is their house,
in lansing. that's where we find dave spencer with an update. dave? >> state police are estimating 10,000 protesters when the sun comes up. they've closed streets out around the capitol, restricting park around here. some of the schools in metro detroit will be closing so that teachers representing the teacher union will have a chance to come down to lansing to be one of those 10,000 having their voices heard. what the right to work bill will do will essentially make it an option for an employee to join a union and still get those benefits. supporters say that will be good for michigan, bringing in business, while opponents say while it may bring in business employee wages will be brought down due to collective bargaining. this controversy started when the governor, governor rick snyder, said for a bill comes across his desk, he will sign it. that prompted the house and senate to begin their legislation, bringing out protesters on thursday, all in opposition of this. actually shut down the capitol here due to overcapacity. eight people were arrested. they were charged for felonies for

live. meanwhile there's continued breaking news out of lansing, michigan where protest turned violent today as big labor demonstrators took to the streets of michigan's capital city in reaction to the passage of a bill that dramatically limits the power of unions n just a few short limits i'll be underlive by steven and he was viciously assault by a union member. he was standing near a tent that was owned by americans for prosperity, a conservative group that supports the right to work. that tent, that organization, quickly became the target of angry union demonstrators. as you see, the lob of left wing thugs ultimately tore down the structure and they did so with people inside. however, what transpired before that is even more disturbing. let's take a look. >> what is it about right to work that you oppose so much? what is it about right to work? >> it's because it's the freedom to free load. >> they can suck all of the pair site cal benefits unions have negotiated and they have done it for free. >> get out of my face [bleep]. >> get out of my [bleep] face. >> you hurt nobody. get ou
the violence that broke out during a protest in lansing, michigan where pro right to work groups americans with prosperity were targeted. it w the at the present time was partially torn down and two of the people in the tent talked to greta. >> two men came in with ski masks. they had box cutters or knives they cut the strap that is tethered it to the ground they started to floifrp table that is had hot coffee on it it was scary and i think a lot of people felt angry. they felt like their personal space had been invaded. the right to hear their voice was being trampled on. >> several men went in there trying to get the people trapped in the back of the tent out. we made two attempts to get in there. we couldn't further than halfway through the tent. this tent is large. it's 30 by 60 feet. they were standing on the tent from the outside so you couldn't get through the interior of the tent to push those people off we couldn't make it to the back to get at -- i am pretty sure there were women trapped in the far back end of the tent. >> fox and friends will have more reaction to this violence
widespread protests by the labor union at the state capitol in lansing. the law will make it illegal to require an employee to pay union dues as a condition of their employment. despite michigan's long history of controlled labor, the state is controlled by republican-dominated house and senate. yesterday the house rejected last-minute pleas to delay the bill's passage. even president obama, who won michigan by ten points last month, was unable to sway state lawmakers at the last minute during his visit to detroit. but governor snyder says it was the union who started this fight in the first place. >> i asked them not to go forward, and the reasons i said it is you're going to start a very divisive discussion regarding collective bargaining first, but it also will get into right to work. the right-to-work discussion continued to escalate and was becoming very divisive. the way i viewed it is it's on the table, it's a hot issue, let's show some leadership. so i said when i reviewed it, it's a good thing. it's about being pro-worker, it's about economic development. we will get more jo
that would severely undermine union power. cnn's alison kosik joins us live from lansing, michigan. alison, i know this was a surprise to some in michigan because governor rick snyder did a bit of an about face on this issue. >> reporter: and some are accusing the governor of really pushing this issue through the state house, and clearly they're not happy with it. you can see how unhappy those opposed to this bill are, just looking at the sheer number of demonstrators who came out last week and are expected to come out this week. thousands are expected to come out between today and tomorrow. president of one teachers union who we spoke with put it this way. she said, you know what, never in a million years did i ever think that michigan would ever become a right to work state, that michigan was built on unions, and you know what, she has a point there. unions have really been the backbone for workers in this state, especially when you look at the auto industry. 17.5% of the workers in this state are unionized. it's one of the highest rates in the country. and if this law passes, ted, politica
are -- >> union. >> the sound of protesters chanting, filled the state house gallery in lansing, while inside the capital chamber the republican-led legislature passed not just one, two right to work bills. one was for the public workers. the second, which passed moments ago, covers workers in the private sector. with the passing of both bills here, michigan will become the 24th right to work state, all that is left for that to happen, for the republican governor to sign it. rick snyder promises to do exactly that, probably tomorrow. look at more pictures we have for you here. more than 12,000 protesters gathered in freezing temperatures. i think i saw some snow falling earlier there in lansing as the lawmakers were inside, voting. and, against the odds, democrats waged a final losing battle. poppy harlow, let me bring you in there, amidst all of this in lansing. set the scene for me, now that we know, poppy, both the bills passed. what is the reaction like in the crowd? >> we knew this was going to happen and frankly, brooke, so did many of the workers, many of them union workers here in the
